With Micro Jig's precision tapering jig, you can cut clean, crisp tapers with precise repeatability in increments as fine as 1/8 of a degree. Cut 2-, 4-, even 8-sided tapered legs as well as tapers for table tops and cabinet parts with a single jig! The Microdial adjustment system features index holes to ensure a positive angle stop before you lock in your setting with the knobs. In addition, the tapering jig features the Memorylock system, which maintains two independent angle stops, and lets you easily toggle between the two. Two separate scales let you set the jig either by degrees or by rise and run, and of course, you can also bypass the index holes, and set the jig by lining up your layout marks. The tapering jig is designed to interface seamlessly with the optional Grr-Ripper GR100Y and GR-200 (#62689, #30737 sold separately) for the ultimate in safety and versatility.

Features:

  • Ideal for use with your table saw, but can also be used with a router table for routing tapered profiles such as flutes and bevels
  • Jointing function lets you use the tapering jig to put a perfectly straight edge on rough-sawn boards
  • Patent pending Microdial Colormatch System lets you to set incremental tapers in increments of 1/8 of a degree
  • Two separate scales for setting your angle: by rise and run or by degrees
  • Rise and run scale is accurate to within 1/16" per foot
  • Degree scale is accurate to within 1/8°
  • If you want to set the taper jig the traditional way by lining up your scribe marks with the miter slot, you can easily override the incremental system
  • Memorylock system "remembers" up to two settings so you can switch easily without having to use the scale - great for common settings that you use often

Great! A 10!
Love it! Whoever made it must be a genius! Used it the first time for tapered legs. It worked perfectly the first time...without the fancy grrriper handle.

Micro Jig Tapering jig - Works like a charm!
Easy set-up and flawless operation make this jig my favorite shop tool. Ripping tapered table legs accurate to within 1/8th of a degree, set-up in seconds, and two-position memory make this jig indispensable!

Excellent Jig for a craftsman
I make furniture for a supplemental living. I purchased this Jig to make furniture legs for my tables. So far I have had excellent results & have saved money by not purchasing pre made legs for my multiple tables I have made since purchasing this Micro Dial Jig.

It was not what I expected it to be. Difficult to use, should have purchased the Rockler jig instead.

Looked like the most precision jig available.

The reviews on the Rockler version weren't good.

needed to make some sharp tapers and accurate angles

Lots of projects that I work on call for specific angles, wether I am using a set of plans or not. I am always looking for a way to get better more reliable angles and cuts.
Scott S on Oct 23, 2017
We work in an educational shop and need tools that are not only accurate but safe as well. We were in need of a new taper jig. It seemed this one was both easy to use and accurate. I also like that its best made of plastic because we own a saw stop, which will set off a break if it touches metal.

Micro Jig's Good Name

I am a furniture maker and I make my legs for my tables. This jig allows me to not only make the legs but to give my customers a beautiful custom feature to their piece.

can the micro dial tapering jig be used for compound miter cuts, for example making beveled tapers staves?
Chad H on Jul 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is from page 14 of the manual -> One way tapers are often specified is by degrees. This is especially
true if you are cutting compound miters.
can I cut 10" wide boards?
james m on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes is the simple answer. The right side of the jig rides along the table-saw fence and the jig itself holds the angle as you push it through the saw blade. Good luck.
I am building a pencil post bed and am looking for a jig that will work with 7 foot stock. Will this one do it?
AlainZ on Aug 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This would not work on something that long.
I would recommend an 8' x 10" piece of plywood that you can clamp the 7" long pieces along the edge to make your cut
What are the overall dimensions of the jig?
Greg P on May 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The jig is 25" long and 8 1/2" at its widest point. If you slide out the end that moves it will end up at 12" wide at that end.

Ron,
